Counter-terrorism arrest over North Greenwich Tube device

A 19-year-old man has been arrested after a suspicious device was blown up in a controlled explosion at a London Tube station.

Officers discharged Tasers during the arrest on Holloway Road, north London, but no firearms were discharged.

The suspect was taken to a London police station, where he is in custody.

Police have said they are stepping up patrols across London’s transport network following Thursday’s discovery of the item at North Greenwich station.
